Around and About on Valentine's Day

Luna is back and looking for poems!

This from Ray Gonzalez:

On the tenth anniverary of the magazine, I am proud and pleased to say that Luna is back in business and will continue to publish in a smaller format. Our committment to fine poetry and translations is stronger than ever because, in these times of political darkness and a literary atmosphere where too many poets are constantly jockeying for position, it is good to find honest people who are committed to working on a fine publication. It comes down to being professional editors, to loving poetry, and for making the efforts to find the best possible work out there. This means not fitting into any one "school of poetry" or promoting one group over another. I look forward to the further development of this site and to future issues of Luna that will truly represent our efforts to bring you a wide panorama of fine poets, young and old and poems that transcend boundaries to allow the language to speak for itself.


Poetry Daily has been around for ten years now.


Over at they’re talking about a book that is said to be “a beautiful, accessible, and wide-ranging collection of poetry and prose.” Why do I keep coming across the word “accessible” these days in advertisements for books of poetry? What is this code for? Is this really the word the poetry-buying public is looking for? It’s by turns irritating and depressing, that “accessible” is the new Mother Nature taking over.



there's an interesting article about Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.

Good golly!

I saw the Flaming Lips at the Metro in Chicago on New Year's Eve many years ago. What a good show.
